Storyline

The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie is basically a collection of Warner Bros. short cartoon features, "starring" the likes of Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Wile.E.Coyote. These animations are interspersed by Bugs Bunny reminiscing on past events and providing links between the individual animations which are otherwise unconnected. The Road Runner feature at the end consists of sketches from various RR separates (well it does in the 78-minute version anyway). Written by John Gibson

Trivia

The scene in which Bugs discusses his "several fathers" was written by Chuck Jones as a way to debunk fellow animation director Robert Clampett's claims throughout the 1970s that he alone created Bugs. Clampett's name is notably missing from Bugs's list. Also missing is Ben Hardaway, who created the earliest prototype of Bugs and was in fact the originator of the name "Bugs Bunny" (Bugs being Hardaway's own nickname), though in this case Jones later confirmed that the omission had simply been an oversight, and that he would have had no qualms about including Hardaway in the gallery.

Alternate Versions

The original 1980 VHS was time-compressed towards the middle of the film -- starting at the last scene of ''Duck Amuck'' and lasting until the end of ''Bully for Bugs''. This edit carried over into the 1986 release, which used modified box art, but the same video master. See more »

Ehhh! What's Up Doc? Lot's of fun here in this movie?
14 June 2006 | by GOWBTWSee all my reviews

This movie puts the best of what Bugs and the gang got to share. Bugs Bunny explains the evolution of television in his own words, and the results are downright hilarious. He explains the characteristics of his friends and enemies in his world. Some of the cartoons they show are somewhat edited, but what's the big deal? This is the movie, and no one should be complaining about it. The only thing that was bugging Bugs is the "That's all Folks!" keeps coming on way too early, and Bugs doesn't play around when it's his movie being played. The Road Runner segments are always a classic, The Road Runner speeding New Mexico and Wile E. Coyote licking his chops to get that bird always leading to the Acme products backfiring on him every time. Though the chosen cartoons Warner Bros. used were perfect, and the documentary Bugs made was well made. Mel Blanc and other voice overs are golden. For Chuck Jones, he's the master of animation, and Phil Monroe deserves the hand shake for his part of making this movie a true golden hit. No Warner Bros. cartoon is truly original like Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tune gang. THAT'S ALL FOLKS! Rating 5 stars!
